INvestEd college planning presentation set for Sept. 25
Parents and guardians of high school students can get their college planning questions answered at an upcoming INvestEd presentation hosted by Tippecanoe Valley High School on Monday, Sept. 25.
Topics will focus on how to find the right college major, selecting the right college for a student’s career path, maximizing scholarship money, understanding college costs and an overview of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
“Many families might be unsure of how to go through the college planning process,” said Stephanie Anglin, counselor at TVHS. “This year we wanted to really open this presentation up to anybody from neighboring schools that would like to come.”
INvestEd helps students and their parents across the state plan for college with the goal of graduating with the least amount of debt as possible. People who attend the presentation will receive a free college planning guide that has a checklist of things students should complete each year of high school.
The presentation will take place in the TVHS lecture room beginning at 7 p.m. and will last about an hour. Refreshments will also be served. Anglin encourages every student in grades nine through 12 to attend.
“My goal is to increase awareness regarding financial planning for college. We want to equip families to have the resources they need to begin preparing and planning for college as early as possible, especially during freshman year,” said Anglin.
A separate presentation focusing specifically on financial aid will take place on Tuesday, December 5, in the TVHS lecture room. INvestEd, the Kosciusko and Fulton county community foundations and the Questa Foundation will be sharing information regarding the FAFSA, scholarships and financial aid.
